Hello, I'm Natalia.  I know that it can be difficult to reach out, especially when we are feeling unhappy and overwhelmed.  My goal is to help you create the changes you want in your life, in a warm, caring, non-judgemental environment.whether it's in understanding yourself better, improving your romantic relationship, addressing family issues, being a better parent, overcoming trauma, depression or anxiety. I understand the importance of being able to share concerns in a warm, caring, non-judgemental environment.Creating a place of safety is paramount in my practice. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your children, or your relationship, I can help.

As a result of my personal and professional experiences, I offer an eclectic, sensitive, personalized approach, based on your needs and issues with a commitment to providing an empathic, safe, caring, and respectful healing environment.

I have been fortunate in being able to help others for over 20 years now. There is hope, and help available, even if you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel…the light is there, but sometimes, the tunnel is curved.
